I've biked, walked, jogged and geocached along this beautiful path. Lots of shade, benches and lovely stops, if needed, to make your trip enjoyable. There are water fountains as well. There's scenic views of the surrounding mountains for your visual pleasure. Definitely worth travelling along!
Although relatively flat and straight for much of its length, this trial is absolutely wonderful. Most of the trail is shaded and remains cool through the morning into the summer. It was recently repaved, widened, and upgraded with the installation of benches and informational kiosks at some locations. Parking is available in Amherst on Station Road, at the trail terminus... 更多
Gorgeous, peaceful ride. Love the bridge over the Connecticut River. Plenty of parking, picnic tables, and portajohns on the Northampton end. Well-loved and well-used. Recently repaved.
The Rail Trail offers a scenic tour of farmland, swamps and nature. Great for bike riders or walkers. We use it for a safe bike riding experience for three seasons. I the spring it is also a prime area for bird watching. Travel the back side of Hadley farmland, Amherst College and enjoy the wildlife of several brooks and swamps.... 更多

It is a very long bridge with gorgeous views of the river. The trail went through lots of farmland which was very pretty.... 更多
Great trail that takes you through beautiful wilderness areas, parks, near water and bird sanctuary, by old railheads and over old rail bridges. We loved it. Great trail.
Love this trail to walk on but during prime times you need to keep a good look out for bikes and skaters. My favorite spot is crossing over the Connecticut River into Hadley at sunset. Lots of shade and pastural views. Parking is available on the Northampton side.
Best bike trails we have discovered.....we traveled from out of state and were NOT disappointed! Started at the Connecticut River (Northampton, MA) entrance , with our journey beginning over the beautiful bridge. The first mile or two are through residential communities, with one or two of the original stations converted into Coffee houses along the tracks, and an Art Studio.... 更多
